Kanye West Sues Walmart For Selling Copycat Yeezy's

Kanye West is suing Walmart for selling sneakers that appear to be knockoffs of his Yeezys.

According to TMZ, Ye filed a lawsuit against Walmart for ripping off his Foam Runner design and reselling their product at $24.99.

Kanye's original design went on sale in 2019. Kanye allegedly sent Walmart several warnings to pull the product from their website but they ignored his threats.

The rapper is suing for hundreds of millions of dollars.

"Walmart is flagrantly trading off of his and Yeezy brand's popularity by offering for sale an imitation version of the Yeezy Foam Runner. The Yeezy brand is worth 'billions' of dollars, and the potential loss from the imitation shoes in the 'hundreds of millions," part of the lawsuit reads.


Walmart says they are suing the wrong person. The item is actually created by a third party and Walmart just sells it on their website.

 "The product referenced in the complaint is not sold by Walmart, but rather by third party Marketplace sellers. We take allegations like this seriously and are reviewing the claim. We will respond in court as appropriate after we have been served with the complaint," their statement reads.
